Music is one of many cultural threads that connects all of the countries in the Caribbean.
SOCA music is an extension of Calypso music which has roots in West Africa, the origin of many of the slaves throughout the Caribbean. In 1960’s, Calypso was declining in popularity but there was a resurgence to revitalize the art form which birthed SOCA (Soul Of CAlypso).
SOCA music combines traditional Calypso rhythms with West African and East Indian beats making it high energy, festive music played during most celebrations.
